At Santana Creative, the notion of “shoe repair” is somewhat of a misnomer. We not only “repair” older shoes, we also modify or adjust new shoes to better fit our clients feet. Most shoes are built to general specifications—often to the measurements of super models who make a living walking the runway. We realize that most of our women clients live in the real world with toes and feet that perhaps vary slightly from what might be considered “the norm.” They also walk, not on manicured runways, but on concrete, asphalt, cobblestones, gravel and whatever else stands in the way of them and their goal—be it work, school, meetings or shopping. With that in mind, many of our clients come to us, not to repair old shoes, but to modify new ones. By adjusting straps, incorporating non- slip surfaces, and adding unobtrusive padding, we can provide high comfort to high fashion.
Nevertheless, our bread and butter at Santana Creative is the repair of gently used (or even abused) shoes and boots according to the standards of the original designer.
